235 – What does it even mean to be filled with God's fullness?

In his letter to the Ephesians, at the end of Chapter 3, Paul prays that the church members would know the love of Christ and be filled with all the fullness of God.

But is that even possible?

Most Christians I talk to think that's the sort of thing that happens after they die and go to heaven.  But Paul is praying for the Ephesians to experience here on earth.

In this week's episode, I talk about Paul's prayer (there's a lot more in there that applies to you and me as well).  Fortunately Paul gives some really helpful guidance in chapters 4, 5, and 6, which helps prepare us to be able to receive the fullness of God.

You know this passage, (Ephesians 4:22-24) but think about it as a roadmap to experiencing the love of Christ and the fullness of God.

  • Put off your old sinful nature, which is corrupt and deceitful
  • Be renewed by the Spirit in your mind
  • Put on your new self, created to be like God, truly righteous and holy

How do we put off our sinful nature? 

Paul makes it sound so simple. In this episode I share two key points that will help you let go of the sin mindset and embrace the mindset of holiness and righteousness.

Your sin does not define you
